Introduction
Commonwealth Bank of Australia is the leading provider of financial services in Australia.
The bank also offers retail, fund management, insurance, superannuation, institutional
banking, share broking products and investment services (Commbank, 2018a). The main
objective of the report is to explain the market view concerning the behaviour of two
currency pairs over the next three to six months. It will also include trading strategies that
will be undertaken for maximizing the profit of the bank. AUD/USD currency pairs will be
taken because an Australian bank will be examined and US dollars is considered to be one of
the strongest currencies in the world. The current and future market conditions will be
examined in order to understand the exchange rates of the currency pairs. The analysis of the
economic factors will also be determined that influences the exchange rates. The devise
trading strategies would be implemented for the next six months on the basis of the market
view. The Commonwealth Bank of Australia will use the strategy for making a decision
which currency to buy or sell. The report will appropriately depict the market analysis,
trading strategies and concluding the main theme. The implementation of appropriate
strategies can assist an organization to overcome problems in an appropriate manner.
Analysis and market view (forecast)
The demand level for a currency imposes a significant impact on the market price. For
example, if people want to purchase AUD/USD and then sell it then the value of AUD would
go up. The increase in the selling of AUD/USD explains that AUD value would go down.
The AUD/USD shows that amount of US dollar is needed for purchasing an Australian
dollar. The changes in the economic factors of a nation impose significant impact on the
relationship between the values of two currency. If a decision is taken by Federal Reserve to
boost the economic growth of the country then the Australian dollar would depreciate in
relative to the US dollar. However, there are many factors that assist in determining the
strength and weakness of a currency. The economic growth, high volatility and increase in
the manufacturing activities in US lead to increase in the value of Australian dollar. It is due
to the close link between the commodity prices.
The AUD/USD is considered to be one of the well known currency pair used for carrying
trades. The traders are attracted towards the currency due to the rate of exchange fluctuations.
However, the values of these currencies are fluctuated due to the global market environment.
